What used Mercedes-Benz E-Class coupe will I get for my budget?
You’ll need around £25,000 to get into the driver’s seat of this generation of E-Class Coupé. This will buy you a 2016 or possibly very early 2017 car with a low or average mileage for the year, with a full service history, bought from an independent dealer. Expect to pay between £26,000 and £28,000 for a 2017 car that satisfies the same criteria, and £30,000-£34,000 for a car from a franchised dealer.
How much does it cost to run a Mercedes-Benz E-Class coupe?
On paper, the E220d is the most economical, with claimed average fuel consumption of 61.4mpg and CO2 emissions of 119g/km. The best-performing petrol car is the E300, which returns a claimed average fuel consumption of 40.4mpg.
Annual car tax for those registered before April 2017 will be based on CO2 emissions, but cars registered after that will pay the flat rate, currently at £140 a year. However, there is a supplementary luxury car surcharge if your car cost more than £40,000 new, and nearly all E-Class Coupés do – so expect to pay the additional charge, which currently stands at £310 a year.
Insurance groups are relatively high, ranging from 35 to 41, so expect large bills there. Servicing will be pricey, too, although Mercedes operates a number of servicing plans that will allow you to pay monthly and budget for the cost.
